Rita was a big part of my childhood. I always considered her as part of my family. And she always treated me as such too.
I remember the black and white movies she enjoyed, and always wanting to feed us dinner.
I can also remember a time when I was not feeling well and she came out to Rockford to go shopping with my mother, and she brought me a book to keep. I will remember her as a very kind lady.
My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
